"Again, but to never do Biden. You got to stop this, man. You got to have sketches about Biden. Come on, Lorne Michaels. I mean, remember, in Delaware, the largest growth of population is Indian Americans moving from India and assholes said you can not go to a 7 11 or a Dunkin Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I'm not joking. Comics, you have to get on that. You can't let that go. For decades, Democrats have been accused of assuming that certain demographic of voters, black Hispanic women, et cetera, are guaranteed to vote for them. And Biden infamously embodied that bullshit idea when he was campaigning for president back in 2020. He said that black photos aren't really black if they vote for Donald Trump. Tell you what, if you're a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, you ain't black. Oh, you gotta be kidding me. You gotta be kidding me. That level of entitlement. Is behind the Democrats losing control of black voters. Exit polls in 2020 that showed that just 76 or 77% of black men voted for Biden, and that's been dropping since 2012. And their nervous about this, the Democrats. So Biden gets up there and tries to talk black speak and get them on their side, but it doesn't work. Trust one of party assumes that is entitled to every vote with a certain demographic, it's going to treat even the slightest sign of defection as an emergency. And that's what you're seeing with Democrats doing right now. When it comes to black men defecting to the right. This president, oldest ever, I want to tell you, is you're making mistakes about racial issues for a long time. Back in 2022, January, Hugh told students at the historically black colleges in Atlanta that he was arrested during civil rights protests and there's no evidence he was. Same year,

"In my vision of hell is being put in a room. And not being able to close my eyes and just having to watch one of the one show after another. Weirdly none of them are on YouTube. I mean, there's very little YouTube footage from where it was. It's not a coincidence. It's because of, you know, would they have to pay for if they, you know, there's a certain amount of money they have to pay if they put these shows on YouTube. So, oh, interesting. After a certain amount of time, they have to come off or trigger some kind of a payment. But it's probably for the best. Well, I thought you were going to retire at the 20 year mark. You're back. I don't know if you leave now. I think now this might be a Lorne Michaels is that season 48. Die on the air. That's how she did. They keep making it easier for you to want to keep doing it, right? Get the summer off, you have guest hosts. That's fun. They hang out with your family a little bit. But it can't, but it's not, it's definitely not easy. Yeah, they made it for, they took it from a ten to a 9, you know? Right. Even during the summer, there's stuff going on. There's questions to be answered and whatever. You know what? And I know this sounds like a crazy thing, but a big part of it for me was I didn't want to go through the emotional upheaval of ending it. I know I

"A baseball game or a football game or a basketball game, what do you think the live broadcast does that the on demand clip later on can't? Well, for starters, I think the true sports fan wants the story. And oftentimes more often than not, they want the whole story. So I'm not amazed that people stay up as late as they do to watch so much of this stuff. There's no question that Saturday Night Live clips are very, very well watched. And there's a business in that today, but the avid fans, the Saturday Night Live fans, is pretty much their Saturday nights at 1130 to watch the show. And that's largely because they're young and they can stay up late. Their parents are long since asleep. Mister Avalon, I mean, I have to just ask this, he had so many wonderful people famous people, you know, Billy Crystal, you know, as forwards in your new book. You know, when you look back how you started back in the early 70s, I mean, Lorne Michaels, you mentioned him Barry diller. I mean, who is your mentor? Who? Who do you look back on and really impacted your career the most in your trajectory? Oh, wow, that's a very long list, but I'd say that a few of the people who are no longer with us who are at networks encouraged me to take risks. We're willing to let Lauren and I deal with the sensors directly. So we weren't trying to set new language barriers or not barriers hurt. Television. But we definitely were dealing with issues that you would not normally hear at that at that time, some 50 years ago. So I'd have to say, leadership at that network, people don't often think this way, but I sure do. People who are the bosses at NBC in particular really let Lorne and I do the show.

"My audition, I had my screen saver on my phone was like both of their jerseys, some collage I'd made to look at. And then what I didn't plan for, I mean, I was totally memorized. I was able, you know, I could do the same set. I had done it the groundlings. But what I didn't plan for being like a lifelong SNL fan, I'd never gone to a show at the opportunity. So they start walking me out to do the audition and I'm starting to walk through the hallways that I've seen during the monologue and backstage of the show. And then suddenly they just walked me around this corner and there's home based. Now I know it's called home base. I mean, at the time, I was just like, that's the stage where the hosts runs downstairs and does their monologue. And so I was like, I had that moment where I was like, if it was any other time, I would have asked the stage manager, can you take a picture of me on the stage, but he was like, okay, I'm gonna count you down. You know, and it was just suddenly like 5, four, three, and then they don't say two over one. And then I just had to go. And I don't remember my first audition. At all. I just, I mean, I did it, but for me, I didn't have the memory. I kind of remember hearing a laugh, maybe, or two, but then, you know, you read all the books and it's like, if you get a meeting with Lauren, that's a good sign. And I didn't get a meeting with Lauren. So I go home, I don't hear anything for a week, and then I hear that they want to fly me back out to New York, they want me to do another test, but this time it has to be a totally new set, you know, because they want to know you can turn over material in a week. And I was like, no, I was trying to be undeniable. That was like my best shit. I gave them 12 things. And this is the thing that was really cool for me. Another sports way that I chose to look at it. I had been performing so many shows at the groundlings. I had been getting in so many reps over that year and a half, and then the year of doing Sunday company, that at that point I'd had so many failed sketches, but glimmers of like, you know what? That sketch didn't work, but I know people like that character or I know that those few lines were really funny, you know? Like it just didn't work. The premise didn't work, but that character worked. And so my whole second audition for SNL, I just feel like was my bench. I just got to get the bench like, got to get my players off the bench and they got to do the second audition. And it was all the kind of weird stuff I like to do. And I also reminded myself before that audition, like, Heidi, you might not ever be back here, so please remember this one. And I just felt like all my bench players really rose to the occasion, had a lot of fun. I remember it. I thought it went great, but then again, I didn't get a meeting. And I fly home, and it's like radio silence for ten days. Wait, hold on. So you read all the books. You're prepared. You know the process. And you know all the beats that should happen. Yes. Yes, I mean, when I was leaving for the airport, no joke 'cause I was staying right across the street from 30 rock. When I was leaving for the airport, I saw people coming back that I had auditioned with the day before, they were coming back from what I assumed was 30 rock and I'm going to the airport and usually I would never be so vulnerable to a stranger, but I did ask a couple of these guys. I mean, now one of them is Andrew best dismisses a cast member of mine, but I was like, did you get a meeting, you know? And they were like, yeah. Yeah, it was weird and how was yours? And as I was pulling my rolling luggage, I was like, I didn't get one. And then like the elevator doors. And I think they said that in the elevator, they were like, oh my God, I think we just broke that girl's heart. Forever. So I go back to LA, I'm just like, it's not going to happen. And on the tenth day of complete silence, I had chosen to go to the grocery store to just those really was true. What I wanted to do was just walk down the cereal aisle to look at like bright colors and nostalgic boxes to try to just be happy. And I pulled into the parking lot and there was a call on my phone from in New York and 9 one 7 number. And I was like, okay, unknown, you know, and I answered it, and it was like, Heidi Gardner, I've got Lorne Michaels on the phone for you. And then I totally tried to act like this was really normal. And so then I was totally like, yes, put them through. Is this Heidi Gardner? And I was like, yes, this is she? And then suddenly it's Lauren and he was like, hi, hi, this is Lorne Michaels, and I'm calling to tell you I'm bringing you on to the cast. And then it's like in the movies where you go totally speechless. And he talks to me for like three minutes about just like what to expect and this and that and then after three minutes I realized I have not said thank you that said one word and so I just kind of screamed like, thank you so much, sir, and he was like, I can tell your own shock, I'll meet you in a day. By the way, you're moving tomorrow in New York. And I was like, oh, yeah. So it was wild. Wait, so he doesn't even ask if you want to join the cast. He's basically like, you have been selected to be at the show. You're moving here tomorrow. And that's it. Yeah, I guess he assumes that everyone's going to take it. I mean, maybe no one's ever, yeah, he didn't ask. He told me, I was like, yep, I'll be there. That would be such a power play to flip it on him. Somebody down the road to be like, oh, so you want me to be on. All right. Can I have like 6, 7 hours to think about this? Can I call you back? Nobody, I guarantee nobody's ever done that probably. No, let me check my schedule and I'll call you back Lauren. Lauren, I'll get back to you. Wait, so what happens to you if you don't make the show? You just trying to get acting parts and what are the next four years look like?

"Enough to be anything other than the scrub, but that was the seduction for me. God, I'd be with my two best friends. We'd have that year and so forth. My dad never got loud, never got forceful. He just said, dick. This is the opportunity of a lifetime. You're going to live in the middle of Normandy. Not that far from where you've lost one grandfather. And probably that far again from where you lost another grandfather in a different World War. And this is a chance for you to go get a sense of what made those men want to go do that. And that pretty much convinced me that that was the right thing to do. Now, if you grew up in a house like that, you're not going to be motivated by who's offering the most at least that was true of me. That makes sense. In the book, I was really interested to see how you wrote about and discuss your relationship with Lorne Michaels because the Saturn and live thing is such a big part of your legacy in the show. And then as the years passed, people just think it was Lauren's show. You were involved in the beginning. You basically saved the show and it was about to die in 1981. And then Lauren came back in 85 and he's been there ever since. There's been a bunch of books and magazine articles about SNL. There's a really good book in the mid 80s about the first ten years. There was a really good oral history about it. Do you feel like your contributions to that show? Have been captured accurately and treated accurately or do you think that just how do you feel about it in general? I feel pretty damn good about it. I mean, through these last, I don't know, 8, ten years, Lauren and I have completely renewed the relationship that we had from the beginning as friends. And he was the first to say that I saved the show. He left of his own volition. He just was burned out. And years later, I don't know, make an 8 or 9. I was burned out. I told him, so I said, I just don't want to do it anymore. And he said, well, I think I might want to do it. I said, well, great. Do it. And he came back and he found that really most important ingredient that he found 8 to ten really gifted writers. And obviously, he continued his record of always being able to find fine young repertory talent. But there was never any ill will between us. I think that

"lorne michaels" Discussed on Sports? with Katie Nolan
"Other things to tell you. I have a new show. I a new show that i haven't heard a single person talk about. It's very very funny. And i'm gonna go ahead and put my stamp of recommendation on it. It's called the other two it's on. Hbo max it is a comedy. It was originally on comedy central. But they're not very bright and they let it go. it is a lorne michaels produced. I believe and the concept of the show is that a kid in in their family gets famous basically. He's like a justin bieber. He becomes like a except the guy actually sing And it's about his older two siblings and how they deal with the fame and the fact that they're like little brothers really successful as like a youtube pop star in heart. Not one of them's a struggling actor and one of them. I don't even remember what she was doing at the time. It's very very funny. It's very well lou. Well this comes the perfect time. Because i need a new tv show. Yeah it's so funny. It's in the second season now. I think new episodes are every thursday. But it's hbo said It's very funny to the point where i was like. Why is nobody told me about this. And i writing down as we speak. Yes. it's very funny. I also started watching a documentary series on hbo. max. I'm getting really bad at remembering where things are. But the series is called generation hustle. I think and it's each episode. Is the story of a different. Basically conman or con woman con artists. I think katie would be the gender neutral term and they are fascinating now granted. I may have just hit the gym a little hard but i was sucked into the stories. There was this one guy who walked in and basically the cops had to con him into getting arrested. And i was like man. That caught must've been so proud of himself to con- this illustrious con artist but there are people out there walking among us who do not have empathy and boy. Does that terrify me. So i like to watch shows about them so that i can restrict myself into thinking there are warning signs you can catch because i got got once and i'm not going to get got again. So that's what i've been doing so anyway the other two. And then i think the other ones generation hustle. But that's not getting a full endorsement from me because some of the episodes i didn't like i think they're all directed by different people. But those are the things that i'm watching. Let's how i tell my weekends. What a weekend. I've had also went out to dinner. You've done a lot. You've been pretty busy not to dinner with other people Awkward for most of it. At one point i spilled tried to take a sip of water but because the ice had melted in the glass and then kind of solidified re again into like another ice cube of ice and all of a sudden it just it slash onto your face. Yes so i got water all over my shirt pretty early in the dinner. And i looked like i dribbled and so that was embarrassing and then i kinda spent the rest of the dinner thinking about how that was going to reflect on me other than that though. I think i did people that that was my first. I'm hanging out with them. I was meeting. i was like meeting. I was trying to dance friends for the first time. And i am dribbled. So that's i mean like. I said it was a eventful weekend. He yeah now. We're getting into this. Sad stuff. Also got really really bad news on friday that i can't say but also will eventually so it's like this was could have been a really bad weekend but i think but it seems like you pivoted. Pretty try saying i tried. I tried so very hard. I still have a lot of cleaning to do that. I'm just kind of staring at. Oh it's like. I have this morning where you know. How like after you've been gone for a few days and unusually so you're just sits there for like three weeks because you don't empty eh. I had to force myself to do laundry this morning. Because if i didn't. I would actually have no clothes so that was rough. That's the problem with. I have so much clothing. Just a crude from people being like one or this on tv. And then i have it that like i can get away with not doing laundry for a while. But that's a bad thing because If i had to do if i had less close. I be more motivated to keep everything in. I've come to realize that. It doesn't really matter how much i have in my closet. I wear the same three t shirts sweatshirt and one guy wear the i hold onto close because i'm like someday. I will need exactly ready if i get rid of it. Well this week. I've been trying to wait until i can identify the mood where i'm like. I wanna throw some stuff out. And then i just focus on one part of my like my pants and i went through all of my pants the other day and i donated probably three quarters of them and now i just only have a couple of pairs of pants which is like good. If you need a different pant get that pant but stop holding onto these pants. That are not meeting your needs you. Just don't wanna get down to having two pairs of pants complicated relationship with everything. My dad's mom. I'm fairly certain would today be classified as a hoarder. So i'm constantly fighting this. I think genetic desire to hold on to everything and not let it go. Well the hard problem. I i can do sentimental value in the stupidest things. I went on my talk with his shirt. I can't get rid of this shirt issuing this curve pants and have a giant stain on them. That'll never come out. I can't get rid of them. Because i wore them to that one party that how about this. How about this. I think you will be able to relate to specific agony that this is. I wore a dress on television for the super bowl. It was the most eyeballs who've ever been on me at one time and it was the most compliments i've ever gotten on a thing that i wore. Everybody was like that dress absolutely rules. Where's that dress from. I love that dress. When can i wear that again. Everybody saw i was on the super. It can it but they also said the nicest things about it. So it's like should i wear it every day. Can i never wear it again. Do i wear my closet. And i look at it and i'm like remember remember when this life was going to be forever remember when tv looked like it was going to keep being a thing forever. Never thought someday. Someday i'll be john stewart. Ha ha ha. You'll never wear this dress again. So that's where i'm at i'm like solidly on the fence. Between do an awesome in doing so bad. So that's better than being on one side of the fence travis. How'd your weekend. Would you do college football baby whilst technically not even over yet because you got game. Monday night I watch cultural from it was on. I watch trouble. That's what i did That all i did catch your ohio state. Football team plan while i did watch watch to just haven't done. Well this is. This is before we get to before we get back doing better. Talking is Much.
